This engaging British Psychology Society (BPS) accredited Psychology (Educational and Development Psychology) degree focuses on the psychological development within educational settings as well as inclusion and support needs within educational Institutions. Our students benefit from over 90 academic experts and weekly research seminars, and have access to first-class laboratory suites. The course covers all the core areas of Psychology stipulated by the BPS curriculum. This includes the workings of the brain; the processes and mechanisms of human thinking, feeling and behaviour; and how psychologists, psychological research and therapy can make a tangible and positive difference to people’s lives and society. You'll also consider how all of these impact and relate to forensic psychology.
Your first two years of your degree are designed to provide you with a thorough grounding in all core areas of psychology. You'll complete an introduction to psychology and core modules in biological, social, developmental and cognitive psychology, as well as undertaking training in research methods and statistics. You'll also complete bespoke modules that explore the academic and professional context of psychology with a particular focus on this specialism. Further specialisation takes place in the final year where most modules will be related to the specialism. You'll also complete a research project in psychology, focused on a topic of your choosing under the supervision of a research-active member of staff. You can also take part in the innovative Work Based Psychology Practice module, a unique feature of psychology at NTU. Taking on the role of a consultant psychologist, you will work on real-life problem scenarios supplied by external organisations, and provide evidence-based solutions to these organisations. You also have the option of choosing to complete a four-year course that includes a year-long work placement in between Year Two and Year Three. You must apply with the UCAS code C807 to be considered for the four-year sandwich or placement course.

A lower offer may be made based on a range of factors, including your background (such as where you live and the school or college you attended), your experiences and individual circumstances (you may have been in care, for example). This is called a contextual offer and we get data from UCAS to make these decisions. NTU offers a student experience like no other, and this approach helps us to find students who have the potential to succeed here, but may have faced barriers that can make it more difficult to access university. We also consider equivalent qualifications and combinations. Please contact Nottingham Trent University Admissions team for further information.
The student satisfaction data is from students surveyed during the Covid-19 pandemic. The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data – it is important to note your experience may be different from theirs. This data will be based on the subject area rather than the specific course. Read more about this data on the Discover Uni website.
